Chateau MOULIN RICHE expresses its own personality with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Supple tannins make the wine more approachable in its youth.

The 2016 Moulin Riche is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot and matured in 30% new oak. It had a very opulent, ravishing bouquet with perhaps just a little more volatile acidity than some of its peers, although that will be contained by the time it is in bottle (it is not something that particularly bothers me in a wine's infancy). The palate is very smooth on the entry with succulent black cherries and black plums, a smear of vanilla and a gentle grip on the minerally finish. This will be a seductive Deuxième vin that should give a decade's worth of drinking pleasure.

This sports a fresh and pure profile, with a lovely beam of cassis, blueberry and raspberry fruit flavors, carried by light-handed toast and anise accents. The finish has a tug of bramble for energy, but this is ideal for near-term drinking while waiting for the bigger wines. Drink now through 2029. 5,417 cases made.
